10 Months!

Maddy turned 10 months old this week and "luckily" was home sick with Mom and Dad all week to capture lots of fun! She took her first steps this week as well as learned how to drink out of a straw. She's almost 19 lbs (still pretty small for her age although her height makes up for it). She is on the move from the second she wakes up until she goes to sleep. She really doesn't stop going, going, going and with the walking happening any day now, we know we're in big trouble! I had to get a little creative with the 10 month photos this time, so Ted brought home hard plastic letters from his reader board at work. It was PERFECT as she couldn't bend them and she thought they were pretty fun.

 Look who can stand by herself!

Walking, walking, walking!

This past weekend Maddy learned to walk on a push toy across the house. THEN today we were home sick (tummy trouble for Maddy) and she let go and took a few steps towards Mom. We repeated it a few times but it's official, she took her FIRST STEPS a day before she turned 10 months! We're in big trouble now. Here are videos of her walking with assistance and then a few steps unassisted!

We went rafting and camping in Southern Oregon with the Draper family. It's an annual tradition but the first time Maddy has been with us. We had a great time! Maddy's favorite part was riding in Hayden's wagon with him. If whoever was pulling the wagon would stop, Maddy would rock back and forth encouraging it to keep moving. She slept very well in the tent at night and seemed to enjoy the sunshine, fresh air, and time with family. It was a little warm (over 100 on the final day) so the babies spent a lot of time in a kiddie pool staying cool. We can't wait until next year!
